Original post…

If you follow my Instagram Stories, you know our Easy Gluten-Free Biscuits have become a regular in our house the last few months. In fact, I think we’ve made them more in the last 8 weeks than we have in the prior 8 months!

And we’ve been loving them each and every time!

But we decided to amp them up a bit with some cheddar cheese and scallions and oh my goodness, so good!

Still pantry staple ingredients, still 5 minutes to prep and 20 minutes to bake!

Still the most amazing soft & fluffy texture, especially when warm and straight from the oven!

But… completely different flavor!  So much savory goodness!

And I see lots of opportunity to customize the flavor with your favorite cheese, chives instead of scallions, bacon if you eat meat…

Before we get into how to make them, I have to share that the original recipe is from my grandmother.

In case you haven’t made the Easy Gluten-Free Biscuit, she called them baking powder biscuits (for the obvious reason, they require a lot of baking powder!) and she made them whenever she needed something quick!

I love the original hand-written recipe card she gave me long ago.

She was correct, “These are so fast to make and one of the best!”

The basic biscuit is only 7 ingredients — all pantry staples and is SOOOOO quick to make. Literally 5 mintues!

This savory version is the original 7 ingredients, plus 2 more for savory flavor… and just as quick!

All you need is:

all purpose flour (we used GF Jules – affiliate link)

baking powder


a little sugar


1 egg

a touch of butter

cheddar cheese and


You may note that my Grandmother did not use egg but when we started making these gluten-free we felt the egg was necessary to get the soft and fluffy texture.

Back to the gluten-free savory biscuits…

They come together quickly!

You literally throw all the basic biscuit ingredients in one bowl and mix it up until well combined. Then add in the cheese and scallions and mix till just combined.

Then drop the batter into 6 biscuits on a baking sheet and bake!

In 20 minutes you have a warm, bread-y savory biscuit!

Just look at this texture!

And the melty cheese and scallions!

Best served warm, the are so flavorful and delish!

The perfect add to any meal!

And while I’ve only made them with cheddar and scallions, I think there’s a lot of opportunity to customize… you can swap out the cheddar for any cheese, though I happen to like the flavor of a strong cheddar.  You could try chives instead of scallions. You could even try bacon in place of scallions if you eat meat.

Any way, they are easy, savory and delish!

Hope you love them as much as we do!

Easy Gluten-Free Savory Biscuits

We amped up our Easy Gluten-Free Biscuit with some savory goodness! Still pantry ingredients, still just 5 minutes to prep, 20 minutes to bake and still a warm, bready biscuit.. but now with an amazing savory flavor! We added cheddar cheese and scallions but lots of opportunity to customize. See ideas below. Best served warm.
Prep Time5 minutes
Cook Time20 minutes
Total Time25 minutes
Course: Sides, Muffins, Breads, Biscuits
Cuisine: Gluten-Free, Vegetarian
Servings: 6 biscuits
Author: Healthy Gluten-free Family


Basic Biscuit

  • 2 cups gluten-free all purpose flour we used GF Jules- affiliate link
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter

Savory adds

  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese or cheese of choice -- we used sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup green onions sliced thin (about 1 bunch) (you could try chives or bacon)


  • Preheat oven 400 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, blend all ingredients for the basic biscuit until well combined (I use a stand mixer to do this).
  • Add in cheese and scallions and mix to combine.
  • Scoop 6 large spoonfuls batter onto baking sheet gently forming a biscuit shape as need.
  • Bake 20 minutes or until cake tester comes out clean. If at 20 minutes, tops are crisp but you want to cook the center an extra few minutes, gently cover with foil and bake additional 5 minutes.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy!

    I have been making the plain biscuits for some time now, and this was a duh moment for me when I saw this posted. Why have I never thought to add cheese until now. Such a game changer! We love them.

    Made these tonight- I’m dairy free so I subbed almond milk for the regular milk and So Delicious brand cheddar jack for the cheese. They didn’t really brown up like the ones pictured but that doesn’t matter because they tasted so good! Highly recommend trying the recipe with the substitutes if you need to!

  3. Can I make these without cheese? can’t have dairy except butter. Or what do you recommend in their place? Thanks

  4. Hi just watched your video for the gluten free savoury biscuits. Question, have you ever made them with just all purpose flour vice using gluten free. If not would you recommend? I see your grandmother’s original recipe just called for all purpose flour. Thanks Wendy

    These biscuits are the best. We are gluten free and dairy free so sub Miyokos oat butter, oat milk and shredded plant based cheddar. They came out just divine. Had to cook them for about 27 minutes before they brown up and were fluffy inside. A thousand thank yous!

    I made these for Thanksgiving this year with the chives and cheddar cheese. I now want them at every meal. I want to make breakfast sandwiches on them. Eat them with soup at lunch. Something different for dinner or just biscuits for dinner. 10 stars out of 5.

    True to form! Soft, moist and tasty! My husband couldn’t tell they were gluten free and he is a bona fide bread addict. We also made these with bacon and they were a hit!

  8. Have you ever tried to make them without egg? I’d love to meet them but don’t eat eggs do you have any suggestions I know the original recipe didn’t call for them

  9. I saw this recipe on Insta this arvo, jumped up and made it for my wife.
    They look identical to the article images and taste grand!..
    I didn’t have enough cheddar so added a 1/4 cup of shredded Pamesan cheese. We both love them!..
    Very nice Grandma!…

  10. Lovely recipes Karen …Thank you……
    ……but can I ask you spare a thot for us UK GF oldies that aren’t familiar with ‘cup measurements’🥴…. can you also provide in metric or good old imperial ingredient measurements please …
    I understand there are USA ‘cups’ & Australian and Canadian !!! All different🫢😵‍💫?!……. Legacy of the dear Pioneer Peoples using what they had…😊
    many thanks

    1. Most definitely! I recently updated the website so that I can easily include metric measurements on all recipes… I am updating them all individually which takes time so if there is a recipe you need metric measurements for and you don’t see it, send me a message and I can update asap! Happy you are enjoying our recipes!

    Thank you

    Hello, thank you for this recipe Karen. Question, if I leave out the sugar would that substantially affect the final result?
